About 8 days to spare - what's the best bit to do.


New Member

Unfortunately it turns out I will only have about 8 days of walking time free to do the walk. I thought I was going to have more time. I wanted peoples opinion on the best section to do if you only 8 days to spare.

Any ideas?

Hi Graham,
Probably the most scenic 8 day walk would be the Camino Aragones from Somport to Puente La Reina - about 170km - easy to do in 8 days.

You could walk any of the 'last 100km' sections if you want to reach Santiago and earn a Compostela.

From - to Santiago:
Ferrol 112 Camino Ingles
Lugo 101 Camino Norte
Sarria 114 Camino Frances
Tui 117 Portuguese Caminho
Ourense 108 Silver Way

Muxia/Fisterra 116 Fistera Way
